News on Framing Pictures: the June session is being broadcast (and re-broadcast) on the Seattle Channel, beginning Thursday night at 8:30 p.m.; you can see the schedule here.

Come ’round to the Northwest Film Forum at 5 p.m. on Friday for the live version of Framing Pictures (see the Upcoming Events tab for details).
